PLEASE HELP :: Same issue, even worse. I have a snow leopard Mac book, and I have been trying for months but cannot figure out how to stream even ONE SONG from the GD internet archive through my iTunes. When I click on the Hi-Fi link, it downloads a blank icon into my downloads folder, and a text edit box pops up with the names of all the files, but I can';t get this into iTunes. When I click on the Low-fi link I get a message saying this file type isn't available. Seems to me several years ago I had no problem, just click the stream link and the files would all appear in my iTunes; with OTHER problems to contend with in terms of play order, etc. but at least they were the and I could play through my stereo. Can anybody help?? Thanks

I use Macs.... you're just downloading text files, not music files.

Some shows are streamable, some not. The clue is in the prominent box near the top that says "This audio is available in streaming format" - i.e. no download available. You may, if you wish, click on the vbr m3u link on the left and stream via your iTunes rather than use the embedded player.

Personally, I never use iTunes for streaming - I just use the player in the browser. If I download the show permanently, THEN i move it to iTunes. (and to my backup drives.) Hope this helps...
